COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
San Diego IPA
The Sculpin IPA is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. Founded in 1992, the Mart continues to be a catalyst for the San Diego brewing scene, setting the trend for handcrafted ales. Inspired by our customers, employees and brewers, the Sculpin IPA is bright with aromas of apricot, peach, mango and lemon. Its lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops. This delicious Ballast Point Ale took a Bronze Medal at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival in the Pro Am category. The Sculpin fish has poisonous spikes on its fins that can give a strong sting. Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin is considered some of the most tasty. Something that has a sting but tastes great, sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.

IPAs arent really my thing. This ones good. It has a nice bitterness thats a nicely balanced between astringency and citrusy/floral. And at 7% ABV its not too malty.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2015 The aroma is grapefruit, orange, orange peel, a bit of lawn, some resin, and a malty background of bread and caramel. The mouthfeel is medium, with a smooth body of medium viscosity and soft carbonation that wakes up when you press it against your palate. The taste is medium bitter, with some fruity and malty sweetness rounding it out. Swallow, and orange zest lingers under your palate. There is also an aftertaste of malt loaf and resiny hops. Very, very pleasant, but not as bright and fruity as I thought it would be. I probably need a fresher bottle.

BeerInHeaven (434) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2015
pours a semi murky gold with a decent bubbly off white head. Aroma is floral and fruity. Some orange citrus, also some mango or other tropical fruit. Taste is complex. Some orange and other fruits. Some moderate hop bitter kicks in, but theres some faint sweetness there too. Long full finish with pleasant nasal linger. Solid.

Poured from a can. Hazy gold with a very thick, long-lasting head. Very strong citrusy aroma. Bitter, but in a good way. Definitely would have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

libertine (433) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Pours orange amber with thin head. Light lacing. Aroma of citrus and resinous hops balanced with apricot and malt. Flavor starts off a little sweet with flavors of peaches,lemon and oranges and progresses in to a long dry finish. Body is a bit thin but does not take much away from experience. Oily texture. Moderate carbonation. Really tasty but would do well with a bit more weight.

BadAprilia1000 (433) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Pours a nice golden color with a decent head that only sustains a minimal amount. Aroma is not huge but very nice, notes of bitter and sweet hops, citrus providing the bitter and an almost fruity sweetness. Taste is fantastic, notes of citrus orange zest and floral bitter hops, an absolutely awesomely done IPA.

beautiful light aromatic citrus hops. The bouquet of hops is my favorite characteristic-slaps you in the face. Extremely drinkable.

swesson (431) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2014
From a can. Pours a light amber-orange and makes a nice white head. Smells of toffee and light caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, citrus, and hops. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
